  23. Cathy Champion says:


    I used a larger hook and two strands of yarn throughout and made your teddy bear coaster into a PJ bag for my granddaughter by making two bodies. I crocheted them together, leaving a space for a zipper that I sewed in by hand. It turned out really cute!

    Your pattern is great!

    Hi Rachel,

    I’ve finished the pencil case pattern, I now continue with this teddy bear coaster, I’m planing to give this to a boy as his birthday is coming soon.. I’m so happy and excited to learn your pattern here! I finished making the four limbs, ears and body, I have some problems doing the head, as I dont know when to stuff in the fiberfill and how to decrease after that. I’ve no problem doing the limbs and stuff in fiberfill and also making the decrease instructions stated.. And also instructions on how to sew all these parts to the base coaster.Please guide me, thank you!

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Cherine,
      You stuff the head after you finish it. There will be an opening at the bottom of the head when you are done. Don’t worry about decreasing it closed. Instead, sew it closed when you are sewing it to the body. You can whip stitch the head and limbs to the end of the body as positioned in the picture.

  27. CHERINE says:

    Thank you Rachel, I’m going to do it right now.. haha.. Bye!

  28. cherine says:

    Hi Rachel,

    I finished the pattern followed all your instructions, and I added a tiny scarf attached around the teddy’s neck and it looked so great!! Thank you Rachel..Next I’m going to make the fish in ocean bookmark, your clear tutorial and prompt reply really motivates me! Cheers!

  29. Mia says:

    I’m just about to try this adorable project, thank you!
    One quick question: could I start with a magic circle instead of ch2, 8sc?

    I’m new to magic circles but when I do ‘non-magic’ ones I always have a big hole in the center.


  30. Mia says:

    Thank you!

  31. Mia says:

    Hi Rachel,
    Sorry to ask another question but for the head when you say: “Round 9: (decrease, sc in next sc) around” do you mean ‘do a decrease and then single crochet in the next stitch”?

    I’m still new to crochet so I’ve never done decreasing before and I want to try and get it right!


  32. Treefrog says:

    I love this pattern! I’m gonna try to make a rug-sized version for my sister-in-law; hope it turns out as adorable as your coasters!

  33. dewi says:

    Wooooowwww it’s so lovely..!!! i love it so much.. i can’t wait to try to make one 🙂 thank you so much for letting us to learn this pattern for free…

  34. Lee Ann says:

    Absolutely adorable! Thank you! 🙂

  35. Shana says:

    I’ve just started this pattern and I think it should be 6sc not 8sc to start the Body? And should it be 6sc not 8sc on the other sections? Love the design 🙂

  36. EllaBarbara Griffin says:

    What an adorable coaster! A question though: The head ends with: “Round 9: (decrease, sc in next sc) around,” leaving an opening in the head. Are we supposed to close that? Did I miss part of the instructions or am I misunderstanding something?

  37. Shelley M Marshman says:

    I think this coaster is adorable. Thank you for posting it free. You are so nice to put on raverly.thank again
